Hurricane Celia (04E) (left) remains nearly stationary, its center located near latitude 15.2 north, longitude 124.2 west. The system is expected to remain nearly stationary over the next two days. This image shows Celia a few days ago, when the hurricane was located closer to the coast of Mexico.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/hr) with higher gusts. Weakening is forecast, and Celia is expected to become a tropical depression later today or tonight, and a remnant low by Tuesday.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

Also visible (right) is Tropical Depression Darby (05E), whose center is currently located near 14.1N 99.6W at and is presently moving toward the East or 90 degrees at 8 knots. At the time this image was taken, the system was still at Tropical Storm strength. Current estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb, and maximum sustained winds are at 30 knots with gusts of up to 40 knots.
